“In the Puducherry Union Territory jurisdiction, it has come to know that while scrutinizing there are many Private schools which are functioning without the proper recognition from the Directorate of School Education, Puducherry. It is deemed as erroneous to run a school in such a state and it is against the law,” reads the official notice.

Further in the notification, Director of School Education P Priytarshny stated that if parents admit their children to such unrecognised schools, the admission is considered bogus and they (parents) must accept full responsibility for any grievances or discrepancies that may arise in the future. Therefore, it is recommended that parents confirm that the schools have the appropriate accreditation from the Puducherry Directorate of School Education before allowing their children to enroll, the notice mentions.

Meanwhile, Director of School Education Priytarshny stated that all 33 unrecognised institutions’ owners have received closure notices from the department, according to The Hindu. Either government schools or other private institutions could take in the admitted students from these schools, reports added.
